MESSENGER Webcast: Science and Technology
Conclusion and Credits

Cheryle Mako: And thanks to everyone for submitting those great questions! Before we end today's webcast we have some great prizes to give away. Our top two questions from the question board will receive a mission gift pack which includes a MESSENGER launch poster, fact sheet, patch and lapel pin.

Today's winners are Robert from Tucson, Arizona and Hardik from Ahmedabad.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to submit all these great questions!

Be sure to join us again tomorrow on NASA Direct! at 2 p.m. EDT for the next MESSENGER webcast. On tomorrow's program, we'll speak with the Mission System Engineer, the NASA Launch Manager and Delta Weather Officer. They'll fill you in on how MESSENGER was developed to withstand the extreme conditions of Mercury and what it takes to get it into orbit.

Don't forget, the MESSENGER launch is scheduled for Monday, August 2, at 2:16 a.m. EDT. Join NASA Direct! for live launch day coverage.

Thanks to Dr. McNutt for being with us today and making this MESSENGER event the best ever! And thanks to you for joining us live on NASA Direct! We'll see you next time.
